Have you ever felt so overwhelmed with all sorts of things - tiny and huge - happening around you from the time you open your eyes in early hours of the day till you close them again? Not to mention that the feeling is often haunting you in your dreams. This is when calm breathing should take place, together with an inner-voice reminding you to shut off that thought cycle and have you repeat over and over again: "hey, I'm healthy!"

Now, my marathon at this year's TIFF is about to start this evening with two back-to-back films from the French cinema.

I'll be back with more culture-related updates - hopefully soon!
